Jakarta, IO – DHL Express, the world’s leading international express service provider, has acquired two electric vans in Indonesia, as part of its efforts to help meet Deutsche Post DHL Group’s goal of reducing all logistics-related emissions and promoting green logistics. 

These new electric vehicles can travel up to 150 km and carry up to 4.8 cubic meters of load. They will be deployed to deliver shipments in Central Business District areas in Jakarta. In addition to reducing carbon emissions, compared with conventional commercial vehicles, these e-vans are also powered by lithium iron phosphate batteries, which are safer and less noisy when used.
